I recently attended “Reinventing Project Delivery” organized by Federated Press in Vancouver, the event that brings together some of the top Architectural, Engineering and Construction firms in Vancouver. The focus of this forum was Integrated Project Delivery, Integrated Design and BIM. The sessions were very interesting. It covered a wide range of topics from the very technical from the hands of Rajesh Acharya BIM Collaboration Specialist from Summit to design, construction and even social aspects of Design Integration and BIM.

The focus of the entire course was Collaboration and how we are going to change the way we deliver design and build in the near future. Something that stood with me was the fact that the BIM movement is definitely gaining momentum as a game changer in the local sphere.
A few of the construction professionals that I spoke to, admitted that changing the way we deliver and the way we work is still challenging, there is still a gap in the way our business is perceived by different generations, and a lot of terrain to be gained to be fully integrated.
I think the whole content of the conference helped getting closer to these complex issues by including topics like
- Principles of Collaborative Project Delivery.
- Building an Integrated Team
- Pre-Construction Planning
- Trends in Collaboration and IPD
- Revolutionizing Construction Projects
- Transition and the Social Aspects of BIM and Integrated Design
